That did it. Still leaves the riddle as to what was wrong with the file. But, I can move on to other headaches now.

Thanks.

John,

Try to save it to an Excel file first.

OK, this is just getting weird. I am looking at the imported file in
Excel. Nicely separated into columns. When I click the icon for "Transfer
data to Iseries", I get a box stating"There must be an active worksheet to
perform this function". Looks active to me. I guess there is another
definition for what constitutes an active worksheet. Any idea what that
might be?

John,

In this particular case, if you can open it with Excel, could you upload
it
to the iSeries using the Client Access Excel add-in?

I have received a file from an outside agency that chokes CPYFRMIMPF.
The
fields are pipe delimited. I have looked at the raw file and don't see
anything REALLY obvious - the file is several hundred lines long. I
can
open this thing in Excel just fine, but there is no option to save it
with
pipe delimiters. There is a free text portion, which, I suspect,
prompted
the need to use the pipe as a delimiter.

The agency has converted this file multiple times, and the results are
the
same. Other files are just fine. When I attempted to use an error
file, I
got nothing in the created member.

Is this why some of you loathe CPYFRMIMPF? Any suggestions on how to
isolate and fix the error(s) causing CPYFRMIMPF to choke? Not sure I
have
the time to write the program to split this thing apart. Can SQL be
used in
some way to identify or clean up the file?
